Don't visit their site much but a guy I follow tweeted it and liked the article.

This it?

Looking at it quickly, no big disagreements. One complaint I had with BA's top 30 though I also have with them and that's the placing of Matz. Even with the injury, the possible output still outweighs a ton of people above him.

nah that was AA's list

they are having a poll where fans vote on the top prospects so its an entirely mets fan-based rankings

right now, they are voting on spot #13

so far this is the list:

wheeler
TDA
syndergaard
flores
fulmer
nimmo
montero
familia
tapia
cecchini
mateo
degrom

right now the battle for 13 seems to mainly be b/t den dekker and plawecki

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I havent seen you on in a while: I read today that Game of Thrones was picked up today by HBO for at least two more seasons. The 1st episode synopsis for season 3 is also out. 6 weeks... its sooner than opening day. I am pretty excited.

wasnt expecting much. as a game theory lover and a grad student in economics who has done research on loss aversion, this is incredibly well done.

Yes, but all it takes is one foolish GM to ruin it.

That's the difference between having a scout by not so smart GM and a lawyer and a smart one for a GM, surrounded by talent evaluators.

Not bad at all, see they're not as high on the Cecchini pick as others, haha. Think BA had him fourth.

Yeah, love that show, can't wait. Luckily I've picked up a few more shows to fill my time, and they've been pretty awesome (Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men).
